Michigan has been looking to add size to its defensive backfield since Brady Hoke took over the team in 2011.

On Monday, an already growing group got even bigger.

Garrett Taylor, a 6-foot-1, 188-pound 2015 four-star cover from Richmond, Va., announced his commitment to Michigan via Twitter.

Taylor, rated as the No. 1 player in the state of Virginia by Rivals.com and the No. 41 player in the nation, had offers from a number of major college football programs -- including Stanford, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Michigan State, Tennessee, Penn State, Nebraska, Miami, LSU, Virginia Tech and Wisconsin.

He ultimately chose the Wolverines over Stanford, according to reports.
